Setting: Where Are We Anyway?
with Deb Brenegan

Paths to Publishing: The Power of Print-on-Demand

The Paid Writer: How to Start Freelancing…Without Writing for Free

with Janet Burroway

And yet this skill is the first thing that announces to an editor the presence of an amateur or a pro. This workshop will combine analysis of other writers’ work with practice and discussion to refine your POV technique.
